Los Algodones, B.C.

Wednesday - This morning, we drove to the large parking lot on the U.S. side of the border and walked across to Los Algodones. Several in our small group had dental appointments followed by lunch and some shopping. It seemed to be much less crowded and quieter than when we crossed in TX. There were still a lot of Pharmacies and Dentists on every street with restaurants mixed in. I had a shrimp chimichanga for lunch and it was very tasty. And, a much more moderate size than the American version. 

I picked up a few things from the shops and street vendors though I wasn’t really in the mood to dicker on the price so I probably overpaid. We got in line to return to the U.S. around 1:30PST and it took around 3hours to get through the border crossing. Fortunately, the line was shaded. That was a whole lot longer than we thought it would take. 


  1. Sometimes I am really glad for open borders in Europe... cannot imagine waiting in line for hours every time I need to travel into another country ;-)

    1. That's nice. It was a long wait. No line at all to get into Mexico...

  2. Did the vehicle lines move any faster than the pedestrian line?
